How sad for the Sanchez family.

The son of a legendary soccer star was found dead inside of an apartment in the Polanco neighborhood of Mexico City on Nov. , reports Yahoo.

Hugo Jr. apparently died of gas intoxication, a Red Cross spokesman revealed after his body was found.

Sadly, Hugo Jr. was not the only person killed — a second, unidentified man was also found inside the apartment.

In a truly heartbreaking turn of events, Hugo Jr. was the only child for his father, Real Madrid player Hugo Sanchez.

The boy’s full name was Hugo Sanchez Portugal, although he was often referred to as Hugo Sanchez Jr.

Much like his father, Hugo Jr. also played soccer — playing for Mexican clubs Pumas and Potros de Atlante. Later, he became the sports director of the Miguel Hidalgo district in 2012.

Our thoughts go out to the Sanchez family during this very difficult time.
